We're still just waiting .... waiting on the little shimster to make his or her appearance. Everything is done - room painted, pictures hung, clothes and blankets washed, bottles sterilized, diaper basket filled, toys and gear assembled, car seat in (and inspected). Literally ... everything. Well, except I do still need to wipe down his/her new toys to make sure there are no germs on them but that will take a grand total of 10 minutes to do.
So, the Shim update is there is no update. There is wi-fi in the hospital so I'm sure once there is news to share Ben or my sister will update the blog accordingly.
This is me at 39 weeks. HUGE and swollen! Regarding the whole swelling thing, I asked my sister this morning if giving birth was like popping a balloon. Meaning, does the swelling go down once the baby is out? She said no and that it will take some time. Awesome. Looks like I'll have to continue to deal with flip flops and the loosest-fitting clothes possible.
I do think that when the swelling does subside, I'm going to reward myself with these cute sandals! (Sorry for the tiny picture. I promise they are cute .... you may just have to take my word for it)
Also, just for fun, here is a picture of Ben and his prize fish he caught yesterday. He estimates it was around 6 or 7 pounds!!! Pretty impressive, no?
